I have a SP UIModal Pop-Up, in which I have a javascript code with alert. When I click OK in my alert, my pop-up should close...

Currently , I am closing the alert message, then I need to close the model dialog using the close [X] button. But my requirement is that the model dialog should close automatically once my alert is closed.

  • How to show alert when user click on close [X] ? can you share this logic?

Add one of these functions after your alert:

window.frameElement.commitPopup() //passes SP.UI.DialogResult.OK back
window.frameElement.cancelPopUp() //passes SP.UI.DialogResult.Cancel back
  • Thanks . But this option is working fine only in IE 8 + & Mozilla Firefox , but not in Chrome & Safari. As MS prescribes only IE ,I'm escaped. Is there any workaround to make it work for Chrome ? Sep 6, 2016 at 14:32
  • Hmm that's strange. Just tested it in Chrome 52 and it works. Can't test Safari, though. Maybe there's another issue with your code. Sep 6, 2016 at 15:23
  • If my code is having any other issue then how could it work perfectly in IE & Firefox ?? Also I had given alerts in ExecuteQueryAsync(); both succeeded & Failed.. When I run in chrome , my Query is failing and the alert under failed() is displayed.. But not in IE ...!!!! Miraculous Issue :D Sep 6, 2016 at 15:27
  • How about you provide your code and I'll have a look at it? Sep 6, 2016 at 15:30

Inspect the element close[X], find the Id and call click event using jquery. Something like
